4 Quick tips to mimic an hourglass shape

It’s all about balance ladies! If you don’t know by now, we’re all trying to mimic the hourglass shape because it’s the most balanced of the four distinct body guides. (Did you know I have been working on body type guides for the past 4 months? They’re coming, so get ready to see a fabulous 6 page guide dedicated to dressing YOUR body!)

Here are some quick tips to balance your torso:

How to balance: torso

                                                                                          Long torso

To shorten a long waist:

  •   Empire and inset waistlines will immediately draw the eye upward and create balance, shortening your torso. Tuck shirts into high waist pants
  •  Create an alluring neckline to draw eye upward (necklaces, interesting details)
  •  Wearing a cropped jacket will create the illusion of a shorter waist

To lengthen short legs:

  •  Wear monochromatic shoes/pants or tights/shoes
  •  Heels! They will literally raise your height and a neutral/nude/skin tone should be your number one choice
  • Vertical lines on your bottom will lengthen legs

                                                                                           Short torso

To lengthen a short waist:

  • Wear vertical or asymmetrical lines on top
  •  Wear longer tops or dropped waistlines that hit above your hip to create a longer line
  •  Longer necklaces will create a longer neckline & torso (as well as longer purses vs. short shoulder purses

To balance long legs:

  • Wear contrasting colors top/bottom
  • Wearing cuffs on your pants or hem details brings the eye downward
  •  Avoid wearing high heels
